Clients are saying:
"We interviewed several highly competent professionals with nationally recognized firms and selected Susan Davis with @ Properties. Our experience was tremendous from start to finish. Susan took the time to help us prepare our home and then devised a very effective marketing strategy that leveraged her firms brand and resources. She was patient, encouraging and gave us great feedback throughout the process. Susan also provided regular updates on her efforts and during the negotiation phase as we closed in on the sale, she proved to be a skilled negotiator. We asked a high price for our home and I am convinced that we would not have gotten it if it were not for Susan. I cannot recommend her more highly."
"Susan Davisconsummate professional who has extensive market knowledge, employs impeccable attention to detail, follow-up and communication throughout the sales process, listens intently to her clients to ascertain needs/concerns, and offers superb advice re: pricing, timing of market placement, staging, etc. Susans caring demeanor and passion to succeed was evident from the moment we met her. During our first meeting, not only had Susan prepared the standard comparison of homes, but had developed a very distinguished marketing plan to accentuate the beauty and uniqueness of our 92-year-old home. Susan's next step was to gather a team of her @Properties colleagues to gauge the interest in our home as well as the pricing that we arrived at after consultation with Susan. Everyone felt our home was market worthy and that we were spot on with the pricing. Susan then proceeded to send Email Blasts and have an Open House for her @Properties teammates. As a result, our house received multiple bids prior to being placed on MLS and sold within one week. Susan, job well done!! You, and your firm, @Properties, stand heads above the crowded field of realtors!!"

You know you are in good hands and your best interest is always in mind. Not only is she hard working, but also a fun-loving and honest person. It was a joy to tour homes with her and her knowledge of the Northshore is among the best. We were so lucky to have had Susan help us in our search for our first home. We owe it all to Susan for our perfect house and the many fabulous memories we will have there."
